5 Reasons to Switch to Shampoo Bars and Conditioner Bars

I was a die-hard liquid shampoo and conditioner guy for years. I didn't even think twice about it—it was what my hair needed, right? But as my awareness of our planet's impact on the environment grew, I got curious about how much waste my grooming routine was generating.

That curiosity led me to discover that there are some really great reasons to switch from liquid shampoos and conditioners to shampoo and conditioner bars.

They're convenient

You can take them with you. No more worrying about spills or having to pack your bottles and goo in plastic bags.

They're easy to use. Just rub on wet hair, lather up, rinse off and style as usual!

They're convenient for travel. No need for TSA pre-check or waiting for your shampoo at the hotel's front desk; just slip one of these bars into your carry-on bag and go!

They're easy on the environment too: no plastic bottles means less waste in landfills (and oceans) when you use a bar instead of liquid shampoo or conditioner!

They're travel-friendly

If you've ever traveled with shampoo and conditioner in liquid form, you know the struggle. You pack your bags, and everything looks good--until you reach for your hair products at the other end of your trip. Then, with a sinking feeling in your stomach, you realize that one (or both) of them has leaked out of its bottle and into every nook and cranny of your luggage.

This is why shampoo bars are so great: they don't leak! Shampoo bars are solid--they won't spill or leak all over everything else in your bag like liquid shampoo does when it's been sitting too long in its container while riding on an airplane or train ride home from vacation.

They're easy to use

You simply rub the bar between your hands like you would soap, then apply it directly to wet hair before massaging gently into the scalp and through strands from root to tip. That's it!

They're better for the environment than liquid bottles of shampoo or conditioner

If you love the environment and want to help save it, then shampoo and conditioner bars are for you. They're more environmentally friendly than liquid bottles of shampoo or conditioner because they're biodegradable and compact (you don't have to worry about them spilling). Plus, they'll last longer than a bottle of liquid product because you only use what you need--no extra packaging!

Shampoo and conditioner bars are a great alternative to liquid shampoos and conditioners, especially if you're looking to reduce waste

Shampoo bars are a great alternative to liquid shampoos, and conditioner bars are even better than their liquid counterparts. Here's why:

  • Shampoo bars last longer than liquid shampoos. They're made of cocoa butter, coconut oil, castor oil, and other natural ingredients that don't spoil as easily as their chemical counterparts do. This means you can use them for months at a time without having to worry about mold or bacteria growing inside the container--and no one wants those things in their hair!

  • Conditioners are made from similar ingredients as well (cocoa butter, castor oil) so they also last pretty much forever if stored correctly in an airtight container at room temperature out of direct sunlight


If you're looking for an eco-friendly alternative to liquid shampoos and conditioners, then shampoo and conditioner bars are a great option. They're easy to use, travel-friendly, and convenient. They also don't produce any waste outside of the recyclable box they come in!
